He retired in 1999 and traveled the US with his wife in their RV for nine years between jobs. His hobbies included Vegas trips, bass fishing and he loved golfing, recently playing on a PGA course in Biloxi. He loved it.
We are respecting his wishes by having a private service.
Leo was preceded in death by his parents Henry and Elizabeth Lulofs,
“Oma and Opa”.
So we ask all who knew Leo or those who simply identify with his life's purpose to light to a candle in your home, on Friday, June 15th, 2012 in memory of a life well spent and to take a few moments to reflect on how we, too, can bring light into the world.
Instead of flowers, if you would like, please send a donation to Tidewell Hospice at: Englewood Hospice House 12050 N. Access Rd. ,Port Charlotte, FL 33981 (941) 548-2346. They cared for Leo at home.
A single life produces much radiance when that person follows his dreams, tries to do what is right, and refuses to let obstacles stand in the way. Leo Lulofs did all that. The world is better for his having lived. We are better for having known him. Though his life may have ended too soon, it was a life complete in so many ways.
If love could have saved him, he would have lived forever.
